SparkCore to control a CCD

Hi there,

I have a product I would love to develop using the SparkCore if its possible.

So my question is…

Is it possible to connect a SparkCore to a Camera CCD… Just the “CCD” to the spark chip as a controller.

  1. So that when light is detected by the CCD.
  2. It takes a photo using the CCD
  3. It then saves this to a SD Card and/or transmits the photo by WIFI
    to a folder on the the users device. IPAD, PC, etc.


Yes, this is possible. Spark Core has three serial protocols exposed to the user: USART, SPI and I2C. You could use these to communicate with the camera and the SD card.
